This amphitheater on the edge of Fair Park has functioned under multiple different names since it opened in 1988 – Coca-Cola Starplex, Starplex Amphitheatre, Smirnoff Music Centre, Superpages.com Center, Gexa Energy Pavilion, and now Starplex Pavilion – but the venue has remained the same. Among those who have graced the stage here: Elton John, The Police, Santana, Coldplay, Miranda Lambert and Rascal Flatts. The venue accommodates about 20,000 people with individual seats and lawn seating in the back. But don't plan on bringing a picnic; no outside food or beverages are permitted in the amphitheatre.
Parking is free, but it can be a hassle. Prepare to wait on the way out.
